RE: [IPk] hi carb meal/wrong bolus/where did i go wrong?

Hi di

 I was just told, 33 years ago when I was diagnosed, to move to brown bread,
brown rice, brown flour wherever I could etc as "better" - healthier, maybe
better with insulin and to be honest, I've just followed that all these years

 More fibre, less sugar, more slowly absorbed? I know we can eat everything and
no food per se is "bad" but white bread isn't overly full of much good stuff -
that's probably another reason I've avoided the naan breads - a bunch of high
carbs and not much goodness and I've always battled with my weight I live to
eat, not eat to live

Welcome to the world of experimenting with interesting food!

 Why do you think white bread is bad for diabetics though? I mean, it's not a
hugely healthy food generally, and it has a high GI so can raise your BG quite
quickly, but that doesn't actually matter as long as your insulin matches it.
Some people find high GI food is actually easier to deal with than low GI food
as it matches their insulin action better.

I don't believe there's any food at all that's "bad for diabetics".
 There's food that's generally not healthy. And there's food that for some
people might be problematic to match your insulin to. But nothing that's bad
specifically for all diabetics.
